The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.3 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 38 kDa).
FunctionPlays a role in neurogenesis and neuronal migration (By similarity). Necessary for correct formation of mitotic spindles and chromosome separation during mitosis. Necessary for cytokinesis and cell proliferation.
Tissue specificityUbiquitous. Highly expressed in fetal liver, kidney, lung and brain. Highly expressed in adult pancreas, kidney, skeletal muscle, liver, lung, placenta, prostate, brain and heart.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the nudC family. Contains 1 CS domain.
Post-translational modificationsReversibly phosphorylated on serine residues during the M phase of the cell cycle. Phosphorylation on Ser-274 and Ser-326 is necessary for correct formation of mitotic spindles and chromosome separation during mitosis. Phosphorylated by PLK and other kinases.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Nucleus. In a filamentous pattern adjacent to the nucleus of migrating cerebellar granule cells. Colocalizes with tubulin and dynein and with the microtubule organizing center. Distributed throughout the cytoplasm of non-migrating cells. A small proportion is nuclear, in a punctate pattern.
